"First up is the full announcement of the public show over the long weekend. After the two private days of AFOLCON, we'll be opening up the display area to the public under the name of 'The LEGO SHOW'. As an AFOLCON attendee, you will of course have access to everything over all five days of both shows!
"The public show will be open to anyone to attend to view the MOCs created by the AFOLs at AFOLCON as well as some special LEGO models and an extra-special huge MOC being created just for the show! Tickets for the public show are available now from the website at www.thelegoshow.com so tell all your friends!
"The second announcement is confirmation of the first big thing in your AFOLCON goodie bag. The LEGO group have been very generous and are donating 1000g of mixed, loose bricks for every AFOLCON attendee. That's worth over £40 at LEGOLand Pick-a-Brick prices alone! But, it gets better. This is loose mixed brick from 2011 sets of ALL themes. We'll be honest - we don't know exactly what's in there. But we do know there are brick, plate, minifigs, technic parts, train parts, and even licensed parts (and some cool ones too!). We'll announce more details of what else is in the goodie bag soon, but for all the details - head on over to www.afolcon.com!"
This event is going to be massive, probably the biggest LEGO event that the UK has seen, so if you haven't done so already, get your tickets ordered now. As added incentives, myself and most of the UK-based Brickset team will be there and you'll be able to avoid all the nauseous royal wedding coverage in the media :-)
